Fox News Leaves Competition in Dust, Quadruples MSNBC in Top Prime Time Demo, Crushes CNN

Fox News is continuing to dominate cable ratings while the conservative network’s left-wing “rivals” see their viewing numbers crumble.

In the key 25-54 age demographic, Fox News quadrupled MSNBC during prime time on Friday night, the latest figures show.
